Patriotism is not enough

Shot with Olympus E500
London is stuffed full of statues, how often do you wonder about the background of them? This statue is of Edith Cavell, a nurse executed in the First War for helping save Allied soldiers. Read her story here. The words on the statue "Patriotism is not enough, I must have no hatred or bitterness towards anyone" were what she said on the night before her execution.
